Light On

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

This series shows people in the instant of coming out of the dark or just about to vanish in it. This is the only moment that I fall in love with them. Each of the pictures I am presenting to the IPA photography awards, is the result of minutes, sometimes hours, spent waiting for something to happen. I usually get attracted by locations first. I walk there over and over in order to study the light, how and when it changes. Then I wait for the walkers, because people are my scale for architecture. In the end I take the photos, usually many of them, as a speed camera. The result are frames of lonely walkers, icons of a urban modernity which I am entirely part of.
